This event is 21 and over

Evolutionary biologist Evon Hekkala has searched for man-eating crocodiles in Madagascar, mined museum collections for DNA locked in ancient animal mummies, and discovered “extinct” creatures surviving right under our noses. Her goal? Uncovering the mysteries of evolution and finding rare, cryptic, and lost species and saving them from oblivion.

Dr. Hekkala discusses:
genetic sleuthing and the origins of rare species
trekking through fossil-filled caves in search of a lost (and gigantic) crocodile
using museum specimens to understand how species respond to climate change
why crocodile specimens hung in the shops of ancient alchemists

Front Bar opens at 5:30pm. Doors open at 7:30pm.

No cover. Just bring your smart self!
